INTRODUCTION. 



For tin third time, this booh is sent by the author [tfo. first 

being scut in 1887 and the second in 1889) to parties , whom 
it is intended to serve, principally through the /Southern States. 
It was jlr.st published, as it is now, to satisfy thousands of 
inquiries made to the tor iter either in person or by letter as to 
who were the leading houses in certain lines or where to find 
numerous articles, and knowing a work like this, embracing so 
many industries, would be appreciated by both friends and 
strangers and be preserved for reference, is the sole object of its 
publication. 

The book is neither devoted to history nor art. It Jills more 
nearly the average business want, as a guide to Baltimore s 
leading industries ; and while a goodly number of our promi- 
nent firms may not appear, those constituting this booh will be 
recognized, in most cases, as not only among the first and best 
in their lines in this city, but in this country.

PROGRESSIVE BALTIMORE. 



To-day it may be written of Baltimore, that it is not only a city 
whose monuments have given it a distinctive title, but that it is also 
a centre of commercial enterprise and manufacturing industry, as 
well as a seat of intellectual vigor, all of which combine to make 
its influence felt more and more widely every year. 

Long a leader in commerce, Baltimore has in later years greatly 
expanded it manufactures until now her productive establishments 
are so numerous, that they include a great variety of smaller indus- 
tries, as well as many of the largest enterprises in the United States. 

It was recognized long before the revolutionary war, that the 
favorable situation of the city near the mouth of the Patapsco river, 
where it empties into Chesapeake Bay, midway of the Atlantic 
coast, was an advantage which gave the city a start in life, so to 
speak, and encouraged its merchants to persevere, first with canal 
and then with railroads to develop the West. The history of the 
city, in this connection, is full of interest, and its achievements as 
creditable to the energy and courage of its people, as the notable 
instance of its successful defense against invasion in war. It may 
be claimed that Baltimore was chiefly instrumental in opening the 
way to the West and facilitating the rapid development of that 
empire of States beyond the Alleganies, which is the wonder of 
modern progress. 

But it is not with the past, or even with the prestige it gives, that 
we are to deal just now. The past is glorious and it has taken 
care of itself. We are in the present, and movers and actors in its 
achievements. We must look at the city as it is now, after 165 
years have passed since its foundation. 

To-day Baltimore has a population of more than half a million 
of inhabitants ; its area is 32^ square miles; it has nearly a 
thousand miles of paved streets and 1200 acres of public parks, not 
including squares and parked streets, planted with flowers, shrub- 
bery, trees, and ornamented with fountains, statuary and monu- 
ments.

12 BALTIMOBE'e I"" DlBKOTOET. 

More than S 10,000,000 have been spent in providing a water 
supply, which for volume is not exceeded by that of any other 
American city, and is equalled perhaps only by the Potomac supply 
furnished to Washington City by the general government, or by 
the later enlarged system of New York. It is to this abundance of 
water furnished to consumers at low rates, that such an extra- 
ordinary impulse has been given in recent years to manufacturing 
industries, and their multiplication. There are other factors of 
course, but it is due to abundant and cheap water, and plenty of 
cheap coal from Maryland mines, that a multitude of smaller manu- 
facturing industries owe their existence. 

There is still another important advantage, and that is the 
remarkable cheapness of rents and living, in comparison with the 
rates in other large cities. Baltimore stands unequalled as a city 
of homes. Its domestic markets are the best in the country. 
There are few or no tenement houses, such as are known in many 
large cities. The great majority of families occupy single houses, 
and there are fewer families to each dwelling house than in any 
other city of the country. 

The facilities for educating children can be summed up in the 
statement, that any youth may go through all the elementary 
grades, and through college, up to the doors of the university 
without cost, for books or tuition. Any youth may get technical 
training to fit him for the higher employments in industrial life 
free, and he may earn university scholarships and fellowships 
which will enable him to pursue scientific employments. It is 
recognized that since steam has been so largely supplemented by 
the wonderful development of electricity, and the many practical 
uses to which electricity has been put in our modern every-day 
life, that higher scientific education is essential for the young who 
would advance their fortunes. There is no place affording greater 
advantages than Baltimore for training in this line. 

In commenting on the growth of the city during the past few 
years, the Baltimore Sun, the leading paper of the State of Mary- 
land, said editorially, in its issue of August 21, 1895 : 

" The quickening impulse that has been communicated to Balti- 
more, and that has been manifested in its rapid dev< loj ment and 
its increased business activity has been largely due to local and 
foreign appreciation of its opportunities and possibilities as a great 
industrial and commercial city. Its natural advantages of locatic n 
as a market and distributing point, and its superior facilities for

manufactures, as well as its temperate climate and general attrac- 
tiveness, have at length begun to draw to us the capital and energy 
of other sections, and to stimulate our own. It must be evident to 
every one, who uses his eyes and brains, that Baltimore is rapidly 
changing not only in outward aspect, but to a considerable extent 
in character and methods. It is fast outgrowing the old-fashioned 
and somewhat provincial spirit that characterized it for so long, and 
is assuming, with its increase in population and wealth, the air of 
earnest activity and progress that belongs to the modern city. At 
the present rate of growth it is not at all improbable that in ten 
years we shall number a million inhabitants in the city and its 
vicinity." 

The evidences of this rapid growth are to be seen on every side. 
They comprise suburban development, rapid transit, and the 
extension of electrical railway lines all over and around the city. 
They include much rebuilding on a larger scale ; the widening of 
streets in the older parts of the city; the opening of broader 
thoroughfares, and the erection of some of the finest business 
buildings in the country. 

It is estimated that in the five years that have elapsed since the 
census of 1890 was taken, more than $10,000,000 have been invested 
in converting horse-car lines into traction and electric car lines, to 
say nothing of the further sums necessary for the suburban exten- 
sion of these lines. In the city over one hundred miles of streets 
are covered by rapid transit railway tracks. 

It was only on the 12th of July, 1895, that the Clifton property 
was purchased for $710,000, in the northeastern section of the city, 
for a public park. This estate was held by the Johns Hopkins 
Trustees, and contains 252 acres, exclusive of 60 additional acres 
previously bought for a lake in connection with the city's water 
supply system. Clifton has been settled upon as the site of the 
Baltimore Centennial Exposition, designed to be held in 1897. 

It would exceed the limit of space permitted in this publication, 
to mention all the many great enterprises which stamp the present 
era of Baltimore as the most important and progressive in its 
history. But we cannot omit mention of the Belt line of the Balti- 
more and Ohio Railroad, seven miles long, including a tunnel one 
mile long, lighted by innumerable electric lamps, provided with 
double tracks. The tunnel extends under the city at about its 
centre, and beneath some of the busiest streets. Through this 
tunnel the heaviest freight and passenger trains are drawn by the

most powerful electric motor ever constructed, specially designed 
for this service, and of itself a notable scientific product, besides 
being the starting point perhaps of a new era in railroading. In 
this connection, too, it cannot be forgotten that it was in Baltimore 
that Peter Cooper achieved the first success with the steam rail- 
road locomotive, just as it was here that Daft demonstrated the 
practicability of the first surface electric railroad and motor on the 
Huntington route. Now we have added to the city's triumphs of 
i mention the powerful electric motor of the Belt line tunnel for 
heavy traffic. Still another step in rapid development was the 
recent establishment, close to Baltimore, of the Sparrow's Point 
Steel Works, an outgrowth of the parent concern at Steelton, Pa. 
It was the advantageous site, and proximity to deep water, that 
first induced the founders of the Sparrow's Point works to consider 
the step. The result was the construction of a large suburban 
industrial town, with one of the most complete plants in the country 
for steel ship-building, and other manufactures en a large scale. 
Here, too, is the powerful steam crane which was used to land the 
great Krupp gun for exhibition at* the Chicago World's fair. 
Nowhere else than at Baltimore were the facilities to be found for 
landing of this great engine of war, and other weighty exhibits 
sent over by the same manufacturers. 

The toted value of the manufactured products of Baltimore in 
1890, according to the United States census, was 5140,401,026. 
In 1895 tne total is estimated at more than 5200,000,000. The 
number of people employed in manufactures was then nearly 
100,000. Now they number 120,000, according to the latest 
estimates. 

The Custom House receipts in 1890 were $3,105,800; in 1894 
they were £3,188,223. 

The Bank clearances in 1890 were $753,095,193; in 1894 they 
were 5673,443,512. 

These figures, to some extent, reflect the annual volume of busi- 
ness, but not all of it. The productive enterprise of the pecj le is 
shown to some extent by the examples that have been given, but 
they are only a few of the most conspicuous. 

It may be safely asserted that none of the cities of the Union are 
in better condition, financially, or more enterprising than Baltimore, 
in this year of grace. Combined with its well-known soundness 
and stability, are the elements of progress visible on every hand, 
which if persevered in cannot fail to realize the highest expectations.

THE WOMAN'S COLLEGE OP BALTIMORE. 

John F. Goucher, President. 

The Woman's College of Baltimore is the latest of the educa- 
tional enterprises which look to providing special facilities for the 
higher education of women. The question of co-education is still 
under debate. While many see no disadvantage in the mingling 
of the sexes in college life, or even deem it a positive advantage, 
a large proportion of persons prefer that their daughters should 
receive their education in an institution for women only. The 
Woman's College offers facilities for this purpose equal to those 
of the best colleges either for men or women or both. The fol- 
lowing extract is taken from its program : 

The Woman's College of Baltimore was incorporated January 
26, 1885. Its doors were opened to students September 17, 1888. 
The charter was amended and the powers of the corporation were 
enlarged by a special Act of Legislature, April 3, 1890. Over a 
million dollars are invested in its plant and endowment. It was 
founded by the Baltimore Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church for the avowed purpose of offering young women facilities 
for a thorough collegiate education under conditions equally 
favorable to physical and moral well-being. Its discipline is in 
harmony with the views of that branch of the Protestant church. 
It is sectarian in no other sense. Its instructors are selected for 
their ability without regard to their church relations, and it wel- 
comes students of every faith to the advantages that it provides. 
No influence is exerted, directly or indirectly, to determine the 
denominational preferences of students ; but the New Testament 
ideal of character is presented and every legitimate influence 
brought to bear in order to its development. 

The College buildings are in the northern and newest part of 
the city, upon high ground and amid charming surroundings. 
They are seven in number, three devoted to instruction and admin- 
istration and four to purposes of residence. The former are 
massive stone structures, Romanesque in style, and, with the noble

34 Baltimore's 400 Directory. 

edifice and massive tower of the First Methodist Episcopal 
Church, with which they are in strict architectural harmony, con- 
stitute the most imposing block of buildings in Baltimore. From 
any point of view the tile covered roofs, with their broken lines 
made up of sharp angles and sweeping curves, form a most striking 
picture. 

The interior of the buildings is as inviting to the eye as the 
exterior is impressive. All that reflection could suggest or obser- 
vation learn of adaptations, comforts and conveniences have been 
here incorporated. Lofty halls, spacious corridors, commodious, 
airy, and thoroughly lighted class and lecture rooms, cozy studies, 
quiet alcoves, well-appointed laboratories, all promise serious, 
earnest work under the healthiest and happiest conditions. 

The curriculum is of the improved modern type. There is a 
judicious admixture of required and elective studies. The group 
system is followed, in which studies are grouped in such a way as 
to lay a sufficient basis for specialization. The standard of admis- 
sion and the standard of graduation are those of the best eastern 
colleges. The instructors are thirty in number and for the most 
part specialists in their several departments. 

The physical training of the young women who attend this Col- 
lege is carefully looked after. Bennett Hall and its annex are 
devoted to this purpose. Their design and equipment are admir- 
ably fitted to their uses. A woman-physician presides over the 
Gymnasium, accurate measurements and careful examinations of 
the students are periodically made, and such exercise is appointed 
them as their condition seems to demand. The exercises are 
under the direction of graduates of the Royal Central Gymnastic 
Institute of Stockholm, Sweden, and the system of training is that 
known as the Swedish System. 

The last register of the College, 1894-95, shows an attendance 
of two hundred and six students. The graduating class of 1895 
numbered twenty-three. Thirty-five different States were repre- 
sented by the students and all denominations of Christians.

THE ENOCH PRATT FREE LIBRARY 



i >] BALTIMORE CITY. 




This institution was founded by the gift to the city of Baltimore, 
by Mr. Enoch Pratt, of a Main Library Building, costing some 
$250,000, and four buildings for Branch Libraries, at the average 
expense of some $20,000, and a money endowment of $833,333.33 ; 
on condition that the city create a perpetual annuity of $50,000 in 
favor of a Board of Trustees, who should have the power of filling 
vacancies in their own number. This gift was proffered in a 
letter written by Mr. Pratt to the Mayor and City Council on 
January 21, 1882. It was voted by the City Council on February 4 
that they accept it as soon as requisite legislation could be obtained. 
The necessary act was speedily passed and approved on March 30, 
1882. On July 15, the City Council passed an ordinance provid- 
ing for the submission of the question of the acceptance of Mr. 
Pratt's gift to the voters of the city at an election. On October 25, 
the election was held and a majority of the votes were found to be 
for the acceptance of the gift. Work on the buildings was now 
rapidly pushed and they were reported as complete in the fall of 
1884. In November of that year, Dr. Lewis H. Steiner of Fred- 
erick City was appointed Librarian and at once began the work of 
organization and of the purchase ofbooks. As a result of this work, 
the Library was formally opened with public exercises, at the 
Academy of Music, on the afternoon of January 4, 1886. In 1888, 
a fifth Branch Library was erected from the surplus which had 
accumulated in the Library's income. In February, 1892, Dr. 
Steiner died suddenly and his son, Bernard C. Steiner, the present 
librarian, was appointed to succeed him. 

in accordance with the desires of the founder, the Library has 
been open for all citizens of Baltimore on registration of their 
names and deposit of a certificate of guarantee from some property-

holder. The Main Library has always been open from nine 
o'clock in the morning to half past eight (and the Reading Room 
until ten) in the evening. The Branch Libraries were open from 
two to nine in the evening, until the summer of 1895, when three 
of them were opened in the morning, as the Main Building. 

The Library stands fourth in rank among the free circulating 
libraries of the country, both as to number of books contained and 
number of books circulated. In the circulation of books it has 
been increasing at the rate of 50,000 volumes a year for two or 
three years past. In 1895 the circulation of books will be in the 
neighborhood of 600,000. From the opening of the Library to 
January 1, 1895, 4,097,113 books had been circulated. Some 
75,000 persons have availed themselves of the privileges of the 
Library, and of these over 30,000 have either registered, or made 
renewed application for the use of books, within the past three 
years. The Main Library now possesses a collection of about 
1 10,000 books; the collections of the Branch Libraries are from 
10,000 to 13,000. Large numbers of carefully selected new books 
are being constantly added to these collections. 

The Reading Room of the Main Library has on file over 300 
current magazines and periodicals, and the Branch Library 
Reading Rooms each contains about 40. In addition to books in 
the English language, there are to be found on the shelves of the 
Library good collections of the masterpieces of literature in 
German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Bohemian, Latin, 
and Greek. Thus the tastes of all the inhabitants are supplied. 
How well the people appreciate the institution is shown by the 
fact that the circulation this year is larger than the number of 
inhabitants of Baltimore and, if evenly distributed, would give 
every man, woman and child in the city a book to read during 
the year 1895. The books may be kept out by borrowers for two 
weeks, after which they become liable to a fine of two cents a day. 
Experience has shown that, on the average, one book in every 
nineteen issued is kept out for a day or more over time. 

Enoch Pratt, the founder of the Library, was born in North 
Middleborough, Massachusetts, on September 10, 1808, and is 
now 87 years old. He graduated at Bridgewater Academy at the 
age of 15, and then entered a business house in Boston, where he 
remained until 21 years of age. In 1831 he removed to Baltimore 
and established himself as a commission merchant. He founded 
the wholesale iron house of Pratt & Keith and later that of Enoch 
Pratt & Brother, at the head of which he still remains. He has been 
President of the National Farmers and Planters' Bank for many 
years, and for a long period was one of Baltimore's finance com- 
missioners. He was closely identified with the Philadelphia, Wil- 
mington and Baltimore Railroad Company for many years, as well 
as with other railroads and steamboat lines. He is President of 
the House of Reformation for Colored Children at Cheltenham, 
Prince George's County, and of the Maryland School for the Deaf 
and Dumb at Frederick.

JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY. 



In 1873 Mr. Johns Hopkins, a wealthy merchant of Baltimore, 
left the bulk of his large fortune of between six and seven millions 
of dollars to found a university and a hospital. For the organiza- 
tion and administration of the University the founder appointed a 
board of twelve trustees, selected for especial fitness for the 
responsible trust. These gentlemen, after carefully considering 
the purposes of the testator and the needs of the community, and 
after the examination of the chief university systems in Europe and 
the United States, fixed upon a general design, which seemed to 
combine the greatest advantages and to be, at the same time, 
elastic enough to admit of such modifications as experience should 
show to be desirable. The President of the University is ex-officio 
a member of the Board of Trustees. 

As now constituted, the Johns Hopkins University consists of a 
collegiate department, a university department, and a medical 
school, which was opened in the autumn of 1893 and is in close 
co-operation with the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The academic 
staff consisted in 1894-95 of eighty-six members, including the 
president, professors of several grades, assistants and instructors. 
The students numbered in 1894-95, 589. 

The President of the University is Daniel C. Gilman, LL. D., 
and the older Professors are Basil L. Gildersleeve, LL. D., Pro- 
fessor of Greek, Simon Newcomb, LL. D., Professor of Mathe- 
matics and Astronomy, Ira Remsen, LL. D., Professor of Chem- 
istry, Henry A. Rowland, LL. D., Professor of Physics, Paul 
Haupt, Ph. D., Professor of the Semitic Languages, William H. 
Welch, M. D., LL. D., Professor of Pathology, Edward H. Griffin, 
LL. D., Professor of the History of Philosophy, William Osier, 
M. D., F. R. C. P., Professor of Medicine, Henry M. Hurd, M. D.,

Hand Browne, M. D., Professor of English Literature, William B. 
Clark, Ph. D., Professor of Organic Geology. 

The geographical distribution of the students shows how widely 
the reputation of the University has spread. Of the 2738 students 
enrolled from 1876 to 1895, 1150 came from Maryland (Baltimore 
furnishing 934), while 1588 came from other States, from Canada, 
Europe, Japan, Italy, France, etc. 

The buildings of the University are situated in a central and 
attractive part of the city. They consist of eight large and sub- 
stantial structures, or halls, including separate laboratories for 
chemistry, biology, geology, and physics, a new building for the 
medical school, McCoy Hall (containing the general library and 
reading room, a large assembly room, and various seminary 
and class-rooms for the departments of languages, history and 
philosophy), and Levering Hall. There is also a gymnasium, 
fitted out on the Sargent system, and under the control of a prop- 
erly qualified instructor. Six of these buildings have been paid 
for out of the revenues of the University, the capital endowment 
being preserved intact. McCoy Hall, recently completed, was 
built with funds bequeathed to the University by John W. McCoy, 
of Baltimore, and Levering Hall, devoted to the uses of the 
University Christian Association, is the gift of Eugene Levering, 
of Baltimore. 

The library contains 70,000 volumes, and over IOOO distinct 
periodicals are received, partly by subscription and partly by 
exchange, from all parts of the globe. In addition, members of 
the University can avail themselves of the rich stores of the 
neighboring Peabody Library, amounting to more than 120,000 
volumes. 

The follow ; ng publications are regularly issued under the 
auspices of the University, representing as many leading branches 
of study and research, and numbering among their contributors 
eminent men of science on both sides of the Atlantic: The 
American Journal of Mathematics, The American Journal of Phil- 
ology, The American Chemical Journal, Studies in Historical and 
Political Science, Biological Studies, and The Johns Hopkins 
University Circulars. The University also lends its aid from time 
to time to other important publications.

THE JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL. 

The Johns Hopkins Hospital, doubtless, is the leading institu- 
tion of its kind in America. Mr. Henry C. Burdett, in his great 
work upon the Hospitals and Asylums of the World, introduces a 
detailed description of this institution with the following words; 
" Seldom, if ever, has a hospital been started on its career of use- 
fulness with such deliberate care, such wise forethought, such self- 
sacrificing search after the best way, as have been devoted to the 
institution now to be described." The income from the endowment 
(the endowment now amounts to about three and one-third millions 
of dollars) was placed at the disposal of the trustees in 1873, and 
their activity began at once. Several years were devoted to per- 
fecting the plan, and the utmost care was given to every detail of 
the construction, so that when the institution was opened in 1889, 
Dr. J. S. Billings, of the United States Army, who had made a 
special study of European hospitals, was able to affirm that in 
regard to construction " these were the best buildings of their kind 
in the world." The Hospital occupies four squares, covering 
about fourteen acres, upon an elevated site in the eastern part of 
the city. It is built upon the pavilion system, the complete plan 
calling for twenty-five buildings, of which nineteen have been com- 
pleted. The system of ventilating and heating is especially perfect, 
and something of its magnitude is shown by the total length of the 
piping in the buildings, which is said to be over sixty miles. The 
heating is done by warm water radiators, through which the incom- 
ing air passes, so that the temperature of this air may be regulated 
at will without changing its volume. A constant flow of fresh air 
to the amount of about one cubic foot per second for each indi- 
vidual occupying a ward is maintained in all conditions of the 
weather. The registers are so arranged that the current of air 
never passes from one bed to another, but directly from each bed 
to a ventilator located underneath or in a central shaft. An account 
of the special features of the construction, many of which have been 
worked out with great care, fills many pages of the large quarto 
description published by the trustees of the hospital and consti- 
tutes a valuable guide to those who are preparing plans for such 
buildings. 

The fifty-eight private rooms for pay patients are nearly always 
occupied, and the free wards contain an average of about one 
hundred and twelve patients. The total number under treatment 
in the Hospital last year was 3018, while the out-patient depart- 
ment prescribed for 56,179 others. 

The nursing is well organized, with a superintendent, thirteen 
head nurses and sixty-one pupils. The training school for nurses 
is especially efficient. The instruction extends over a period of 
two years, and embraces a course of six weeks in the art of cooking. 
The educational work of the Hospital has been greatly increased 
by the opening of the Medical School of the Johns Hopkins 
University, of which it was designed to become a part.
